    I've just been reading your fine Things to Do tips on Ottawa. The Parliament buildings sound especially interesting.

      Thanks for your visit to our Ottawa page. The Parliament buildings were a nice suprise, honestly I did not expect something like that from this relatively young city.

    I saw the Maman in Tokyo. I didn't realize that we had one in Ottawa. You don't suppose that there's really just one that moves around do you?

    Saw you on line, so thought I'd say "Hi" and wish you a Happy Thanksgiving. I just put my turkey in the oven. Lori
